I tried this in the Movie forums and couldn’t get any takes so lets try it here:
While there currently are no plans for “Hamilton” to be made into a movie and we can all hope it doesn’t take as long as Les Miserables or Chicago to make its way to the big screen. While “Rent” and “The Producers” were Broadway smashes the movies with some or all in the formers case cast that include many of the same players didn’t work. So in that spirit lets cast the “Hamilton” movie! For fun I split some of the roles which were played by one actor or actress!
Eliza Schuyler Hamilton
Marquis de Lafayette
King George III
I don’t have selections for all… I’d like to see King George III played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Maria Reynolds which would be reduced to a one song cameo practically played by Ashanti but ONLY IF Jay Z plays her husband!!!
I think if a film were to be made sometime soon, these would be my casting choices…
Alexander Hamilton: Riz Ahmed
Aaron Burr: Jamie Foxx
Eliza Schuyler Hamilton: Rihanna
Angelica Schuyler: Beyonce
Marquis de Lafayette: Common
Thomas Jefferson: Daveed Diggs
George Washington: Will Smith
King George III: James Corden
